Open Source Software

Sponsored by

Broadening our 2023 focus on platform engineering, this track is a technical one with leaders in the breadth of technical open source software waiting for your pitches, and ready to review all and any technical areas of open source software from platform engineering, and cloud computing to databases and operating systems.  

The full sweep of open source software will be discussed across this track and it will cover all levels of technical understanding. Sessions will be clearly marked to indicate experience level.  

As with all tracks in 2024, this track will include AI openness and the benefits and challenges of this relevant to track topics.

This year’s CFP is now closed. Thank you to everyone who submitted content this year.  Our CFP Committees are busy reviewing all of the submissions and we aim to announce the conference schedule by 15th December.
